treasures found...

during a long, frigid walk with my love...

snow gently falling...

i gathered treasures for our dining room table...

a beautiful mossy-lichen covered branch,

dried weeds,

and branches with simple, gorgeous silhouettes...



















thank you mother nature.

thank you very much.

Could you buzz on over and do my table for me? You're not that far away! :) Just perfect!

You are very creative. You apparently can take the cold better than I can if you were out there taking a walk. :) We are suppose to have a heat wave this week - in the 40's.
Have a great week.

Gorgeous! Makes me want to go on a hike. Sort of. ;-) Seriously, very beautiful! I love the branch. Very, very wonderful. God's handiwork in miniature.
